don't worry about it racingkd everything on here is a english lession it seems. makes the small minds happy to pick on people.

as for your question i have been picked up by Fusion batteries, Integy, RD logics. all have been good to me even though i do not hit all the big races.

best advice i can give you if you are interested in looking for some sponsorship is keep good information on your races. i keep a list of all races i attend even club races with starting and finishing information. I also send a monthly email to my sponsors letting them know how i am doing.

good luck with it and don't be affraid to send a request all thay can do is say no. i sent 4 to integy befor thay offered me a discount.

i agree with WVRACER...u guyz bein all messed...maybe he's a lil kid or something...well hres the answer to ur question..its like a company likes your skills in driving...so they make you part of their team..you get all ur **bling bling** for free..they buy all the parts you need if you break something...things like that. got any more questions? just ask

You get sponsored if you are consistently in the top flight in your region.

You have to make the sponsor's products look good.

And attend larger and larger races with bigger and bigger names. The larger the event, the better chance you have of being "Discovered". It also helps your chances if you already use a manufacturer's product too. Be careful though...being sponsored can make racing more of a "job" then a hobby depending on the requirements.
